Training

  • Training location: Academia Juan Carlos Ferrero
  • Hours of training per week: 30 h / week
  • Levels of training offered by the camp: Advanced, Intermediate, Beginner

This academy offers high performance training with highly experienced trainers for those who want to improve their level and some day become professional tennis players.

The training is intensive, between 33 and 38 hours a week from Monday to Saturday. Saturday afternoons and Sundays are dedicated to rest except for when a tournament takes place or if the student is training for one.

There are three types of training: technical court training and physical, mental or psychological training.

Players are assigned their own trainer and after an examination, a personal training plan is designed as well as a tournament calendar. The player works with the staff but the personal trainer is the one who works the most with the player.

Players who combine training with academic studies only train one hour less than the rest of the players.

The fantastic and modern facilities allow players to take advantage of their training in order to improve their level. Two intelligent courts (Playsight) are available with the latest technology where players can maximize their training, obtain game statistics of each player as well as program different exercises of various difficulties depending on the level of the player, and analyze games and specific strokes.

The application allows for parents to follow games and strokes from distance. Each player works daily with an assigned instructor and has terrific facilities available:

  • 10 clay courts
  • 7 hard courts
  • 1 covered hard court
  • 1 central hard court
  • 1 artificial grass court
  • 400m Running track
  • Technogym
  • Physical therapy clinic

Training Facilities

The tennis school stands out for its fantastic facilities and has been qualified as one of the best in the world. Its the only one (so far) that has two intelligent courts with the latest Playsight technology measuring all the parameters and maximizing the players performance by creating personalized exercises and measuring the results in order to continue improving.

Language Classes

  • Available languages: Spanish, English, French, Ruso
  • Available languages: English
  • Children per group: 4

The educational program offers players who want to include their studies with tennis training as an option. The main advantage is that the educational program is perfectly designed for the daily training program followed by kids at the academy. In fact, the kids who study have one hour less of training than those who only dedicate their time to training.

Spanish speaking students receive their academic studies from CIDEAD (Center for Innovation and Development from the E-Learning University). This type of e-learning education is designed by the State in order to adapt education to kids who need to combine their studies with hard tennis training.

The academy works with Kings College in Alicante for English speakers, where students attend to continue their education.

This academy has professors who offer support to the students, answer their questions and help them from a distance when they are away participating in a competition.

English or Spanish classes are also offered. It is important for an athlete to learn several languages and this academy offers the opportunity to continue improving the level of English or Spanish while they train to be a professional tennis player.

Camp Schedule

The busy day of a tennis player at the academy consists of several classes and training in the morning and afternoon. The academic education is designed perfectly for athletes and adapts to the training schedule of the player.

Weekends

Kids train on Saturday mornings during their last session of the week and spend Saturday afternoon and all day Sunday resting. Tournaments take place on the weekends so at times, kids spend this time participating in a competition or preparing for a future tournament.

The kids have free access to the rest of the facilities during their free time so they can have fun at the pool, play golf, use the TV room or for example, play soccer at the soccer 7 academy.
